    A man who said he took a pickax to Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been charged with vandalism, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office announced Wednesday. Austin Clay, 24, of Glendale, was charged with one felony count of vandalism and was expected to be arraigned Wednesday. On July 25, Clay called Los Angeles police and told them he had defaced the president’s star on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, authorities said. The attack almost completely obliterated the star, including Trump’s nameplate. Private security officers in the area attempted to intervene but couldn’t stop the...
  • Man who destroyed Trump's Hollywood star says he just wanted to bring 'positive political change'

    The man who destroyed Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star wants a gold star. Last month, a man carrying a pickaxe smashed the star into smithereens. On Wednesday, that man pleaded not guilty to felony vandalism charges, writes The Hollywood Reporter, and said he "only wanted to bring about positive political change." "I don't personally think that there should be any charges brought against me," he told reporters outside the Los Angeles courthouse. "Because what I did, I believe, was a rightful and just act." Trump's star was previously pulverized by a different pickaxe-wielding individual in 2016. The alleged vandal,...

    Deadline ^ | August 15, 2018 | Amanda N'Duka
    As the advancement of technology continues to replace the need for human labor, American History X director Tony Kaye is undertaking a new — and maybe controversial — step in filmmaking by employing an Artificial Intelligent (A.I.) actor as the lead in his next film, 2nd Born. Unlike Robin Williams’ 1999 film Bicentennial Man or the Steven Spielberg-directed A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Kaye is aiming to cast a real robot, who will be trained in different acting methods and techniques. The idea, which originated from Kaye and producer Sam Khoze, is to forgo the use of computer-generated effects in favor of...

  • Hogan's Heroes

    08/14/2018 8:21:22 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 123 replies
    YouTube is such a time capsule. When I was growing up, one of the shows my father used to watch was "Hogan's Heroes." I had not actually watched the show since the early 1970s so the show itself was long forgotten but the theme music was always a bit of an earworm, popping up randomly in my head from time to time during the decades since. About a week ago, I noticed that entire episodes of Hogan's Heroes was on YouTube and decided to click on one. As the opening credits played, everything was instantly recognizable to me even though...

    Morgana King, a boldly original jazz singer with a four-octave voice and dramatic stage presence who was perhaps better known for portraying Marlon Brando’s wife in the first two Godfather movies, died March 22 in Palm Springs, Calif. She was 87. Her death, which had not previously been reported, was confirmed by the Riverside County coroner’s office. A representative from the office said the cause was non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

    Jane Fonda resumes her performance as an historical revisionist on a subject that keeps coming back to haunt her: the Vietnam War. Jane basked in the glow of her safe audience at the festival -- taking advantage of the occasion to screen the sanitized version of her life in the recently released HBO documentary, Jane Fonda in Five Acts. At the event, gullible liberals made up most of her audience embracing the activist’s “proud” anti-war participation from the 1970s, but not everyone proved to be a fawning fan. Dozens of Vietnam veterans showed up to protest Fonda’s blatantly false wartime...

    Tamar Braxton Responds to Delta Airlines’ Statement Rebuking Her ‘Unusual Behavior’ Wednesday, August 1, 2018 Tamar Braxton has responded to a Delta Airlines statement blaming her “unusual behavior” and her refusal to follow a flight attendant’s instructions during a recent flight. Tamar’s sister Towanda accused a Delta pilot of ridiculing Tamar after the pilot left the safety of the reinforced cockpit to deal with the part-time singer’s unruly behavior. “@tamarbraxton got ridiculed by a pilot for flying while black on Delta,” Towanda wrote in an Instagram post dated July 28. “Wow! I guess being a diamond and double million miler...

I discovered Hollywood isn’t anti-Christian as much as it is anti-bad art. The problem is that we’re giving Hollywood schlock.” Barbara Nicolosi has worked in Hollywood since 1996 as a writer, producer, and production company executive.

It doesn’t bring anyone over at all. The response...

    For years, I have been pointing out that the movies are undergoing a phenomenon that occurs to all moribund art forms: they are separating into content appreciated by intellectuals and content that people like. Art forms go through life cycles, are born, thrive and die just like everything that comes from the hand of mortal man. Sometimes, an art form will have a second flowering, other times it is replaced by a new technology that renders it somehow obsolete. But in any case, at its peak, an art form's best work and its most popular work are often one and...
  • American Graffiti” released 1973 (45 year anniversary)

    On this day in 1973, “American Graffiti,” a nostalgic coming-of-age tale set on the streets and steeped in the car-centric culture of suburban California, is released in theaters across the United States. The movie went on to become a sleeper hit. --SNIP-- The 1970s saw a boom in classic-car restoration, even as more and more Americans were driving Japanese imports. The era also saw an increasing number of “lowriders”–or classic cars or trucks with suspensions that had been modified so that they rode as low to the ground as possible

The now-disgraced Gunn was fired by the Walt Disney Co. last month after countless “jokes” about child rape were dug up on his Twitter account.

    Fallen star Mary Sean Young is wanted for questioning after cops say she was seen on surveillance video stealing thousands of dollars worth of laptops from a store in New York City. Once a big star in the 1980s and 1990s, playing the iconic role of Rachel in Blade Runner and Ray Finkle in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Young's increasingly erratic behavior over the years has seen a dramatic fall from grace. Now the 58-year-old actress is wanted by police for burglary after she was caught on camera breaking into School of Old store, on 36 Avenue in Astoria, Queens,...

    The actress you see in the movies often DOES reflect her in real life. I owe Goldie Hawn a profound apology. BTW I don't know her politics. [Considering how many actors had let me down I don't even want to know unless it's good.] Someone had given me a horrible impression of her -- opposite what was true. And I had posted that false viewpoint multiple times here on the forum. A number of years ago a certain fellow had gushed over her for two hours when she went to a lake to read in solitude. She had been polite...

    Hollywood hates Donald Trump so much it doesn’t consider him worth walking on. That’s fine, but how about a little less preening and lot more consistency? The West Hollywood City Council unanimously passed a resolution seeking to remove Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s a purely symbolic gesture, since the Walk of Fame is in the City of Los Angeles and is run by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. But the West Hollywood types weren’t going to let such details get in way of some good virtue signaling. The resolution cited Trump’s “disturbing treatment of women and...
  • Michael Moore’s ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Trailer Aims To Expose Trump’s ‘Evil Genius’

    “Fahrenheit 9/11,” Michael Moore’s polemic about George W. Bush and the War on Terror, remains the highest-grossing documentary of all time. If the national mood was splintered when that movie opened in 2004, it’s nothing compared to what it is now, almost two years into Donald Trump’s presidency. So, naturally, Moore is channeling his most famous film to explore that exact subject: “Fahrenheit 11/9” seeks to “bring Trump down” before November’s midterm elections. HuffPost has an exclusive look at the first trailer for “Fahrenheit 11/9,” a reference to the day Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 election. It...

    A conservative street artist placed laminate tiles bearing copies of President Trump's star across the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, two weeks after a man destroyed the president's official star with a pickaxe. The Hollywood Reporter noted Thursday that as many as 50 of the fake stars had appeared overnight on the Walk of Fame, apparently the product of the street artist who told the news outlet that he wished to remain anonymous. The artist added he was motivated by the recent destruction of Trump's star, as well as a vote from the West Hollywood City Council to recommend...

    In an interview with the Times meant to promote her upcoming Greece-set reality show, Lindsay Lohan made her thoughts known on the #MeToo movement, thoughts that underline a recurring problem with how we talk about those who come forward to report harassment and abuse. Despite opening by saying that she “[didn’t] really have anything to say,” and that she didn’t think she could speak on something she hadn’t experienced, Lohan went on to do just that. “I’m going to really hate myself for saying this,” Lohan told interviewer Simon Mills, “but I think by women speaking against all these things,...
